A former criminal law student has been sentenced to life in a California prison for killing one man and wounding two others in a dispute over a Sony PlayStation console. Jonquel Brooks was sentenced Friday in Fresno County Superior Court. He asked for forgiveness from relatives of the man he shot. Police said Brooks killed 19-year-old Brant Daniels and wounded his friends in May 2007. They had apparently gone to Brooks' apartment to look for their stolen PlayStation. Brooks was a freshman at California State University, Fresno, at the time. At his trial, Brooks said he acted in self-defense because he feared they were going to attack him. However, a jury found him guilty in April of first-degree murder and attempted murder.

There is probably a s tory behind this but who knows what it would be. I just think that there is probably more to it than meets the eye. I guess that this guy probably is getting what he deserves and he may have been high or something when this shooting occured.
